I've played around with it, and while I really like the concept, I'll
stick with mairix for the time being. Since I've written nnmairix, this
is probably not a big surprise, though. ;-)

Basically, at the moment it seems a bit too slow for me. I have about
40k mails on an Intel Dualcore:

notmuch search ""
0.74s user 0.41s system 7% cpu 14.650 total

Granted, subsequent (but identical!) searches are much faster:

notmuch search ""
0.41s user 0.11s system 99% cpu 0.521 total

But still, with mairix I get

mairix -t -r ""
0.01s user 0.01s system 12% cpu 0.123 total

I know that notmuch supports tagging and Xapian supports much more
sophisticated searches than mairix, but I do not currently need that.

(If I have missed something in the configuration which would make
searching much faster, I'd love to hear about it.)
